    Name Associations and Behaviour

    As dh and I are pouring over name options for our little one on the way, it struck me that I have a big problem with name associations, lol! Are there any names that you have come across in your experience in childcare (or in life in general) that have left a bad taste in your mouth? That you would never name your own child? Any RECURRING names that seem to exhibit the same personalities?
    REMEMBER, this is just for fun, and is based on personal experience only so if one of the names mentioned is a family member, try not to take offense!

    Names that I couldn't use because of negative name association:
    - Mason (dd#1's bio father's name...huge douche)
    - Kennedy (I've met more than one bully named Kennedy for some reason!)

    ...and quite a few more but those are 2 off the top of my head!

    Michael - Always seem to be the playground bully. Not sure why.
    Jasmine - I don't know many but every Jasmine I knew was.. well let's just say a certian type of girl
    Gary - Childhood friends douche father. Never liked the name. Ironically it's my FIL's name lmao.

    Those are the only ones I can think off of the top of my head. Fun game!

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
